Letter to the Editor: Mr. Mulvihill True Colors

James L. Mulvihill

James L. Mulvihill

By Keith McCarter, B.S., J.D.

During a heated campaign last November for the 7th Ward City Council Seat of San Bernardino City, James L. Mulvihill, placed first with over 6 percent more votes than the next highest vote getter.  There were five candidates, but yet he received the lion’s share of the votes.  I must say, this was quite impressive.

Some went so far as to blame Mr. Mulvihill for all of the city problems.  This was a bit absurd taking into consideration there are seven council people and one mayor who also has a say in the direction of the city’s agenda, but none the less, some swore up and down that Mr. Mulvihill, who has been sitting in his current council seat for only two  years, was apparently the problem for all the problems of the city which has been developing for well over 15 years.

Despite the tenor of the Campaign leading up to the November 2015 election, after receiving the highest number of votes, Mr. Mulvihill reached out to those who did not win the election.  Not only did he reach out, but he offered to make at least one of his previous competitors a part of the city‘s political structure by appointing him to the San Bernardino Police Commission.  Now this police commission appointee can continue his interest in making San Bernardino a safe place for us all.  This act of civility shows that Mr. Mulvihill is genuinely concerned about making San Bernardino City better by placing highly qualified and motivated competitors in key positions of the city’s structure.

Mr. Mulvihill appointed Mr. Damon Alexander to the San Bernardino City Police Commission.  Mr Alexander is the first federal law enforcement officer on the commission.

Many say you can measure the success of a person by the depth of his character.  The character of Mr. Mulvihill dictates that his success as councilman shall be predestined.  Now we see that Mr. Mulvihill’s true color is not that of gloating nor selfishness but that of teamwork and a true commitment to the betterment of our city.
